Down the Drain:Samantha Combs
Opening: Saturday June 8, 6 - 9 pm

Exhibition Dates: June 8 to July 7

GC is excited to present Down the Drain, a solo show by new member Samantha Combs.

Down the Drain presents a diverse selection of Sam's soap works ranging from her relief paintings to small-scale sculptures. Through her use of metaphorical materials of soap and repurposed self-help book pages, Sam's work delves into the relationship between self and place, specifically exploring the emotional connection between an individual's inner life and the cleansing ritual of the shower. In this exploration, soap transcends its utilitarian purpose, becoming symbolic of the accumulated residue of past thought and feeling.
